An interesting comparison of statistics…

In America today, about 40% of our income ends up getting taxed.

In 1st century Palestine, 60-70% of the Jews’ income was taxed.

Their taxes were collected by some of the most corrupt people of the day. Think… mafia-style corruption.

So…why were those very corrupt tax collectors drawn to Jesus?
